Editorial Reviews

Review

"Woven into these pages are stories of new love, old loves, new passion and lots more besides."
Lesbians North London

"Radclyffe gives readers such a variety with her choices of stories that each reader will be able to find one that speaks to her and resonates with her feelings and experiences."
Lambda Literary Review

Praise for the previous edition:

"Packed with over two dozen utterly scintillating stories that will unlock your secret desires and whet your sexual appetite."
—Insight Out Book Club

"The collection does a good job capturing the dizzying sensation of falling in love, and Radclyffe’s curating does a nice job slowly raising the heat to a culminating sizzle."
—EDGE

"This is a collection to melt the hardest heart . . . All of these stories are real treasures."
—Kissed by Venus

"I really cannot think of anyone better suited to edit this collection of lesbian romantic short stories. Radclyffe has done a wonderful job of selecting the 17 stories that make up this anthology. Every kind of love is here and there is something for everyone and every taste."
—Amos Lassen

"In this sizzling new treasury, erotica maestro Radclyffe has assembled over two dozen titillating tales of lesbian couples taking each other to new heights of happily bedded bliss. Imagination and experimentation are the key that unlocks the hearts of these lesbian love stories and every kind of love you CAN imagine are told in stories redolent of romance, risk-taking, and, even gobsmackingly surprising true love. There are virgins, long-time companions, and very memorable one-night stands."
—Erotica Readers and Writers Association

From the Back Cover

Radclyffe, the Best Lesbian Romance series legendary editor and a bestselling romance writer herself, says it best: “Love and romance may defy simple definition, but every story in this collection speaks to the universal thread that binds lovers everywhere—possibility.” In Radclyffe’s own “Staying Power,” a farm boi falls for an older, blond equestrienne at the horse ranch. A tryst with a gorgeous masked stranger at an “Exotic Masquerade” boosts the confidence and desire of a married couple in L.T. Marie’s charming and surprising tale. Seeing and being seen is the subject of Catherine Paulssen’s “Life Drawing,” in which a ravishing artist’s model turns looking into longing and perhaps something more. Heart-melting love stories from Cheyenne Blue, Andrea Dale, Charlotte Dare, Sacchi Green, Anna Meadows and more. These are tales to read and fall in love by, all year long.

Format: Paperback
Home to Her Country

Just letting her walk away without an explanation is not something Vika is capable of doing.

As much as it hurt Ana, really has no choice.

Spain may be spectacularly beautiful, but Vika has not come here to sightsee. She now realizes why Ana has left, which does not stop her from hoping.

Love is not always easy. Oftentimes, it takes compromise and hard work to keep it going.

Where the Girls Are

Sandra's marriage has finally reached its expiration date, so now it is time to explore her deepest desires.

The want is definitely there, yet Emily knows she needs to take care.

For a long time, Sandra has known, although the knowing and doing are two completely different things. Emily expertly navigates Sandra's concerns as well as her body.

The world opens up for those who have the guts to explore it.

Sgt. Rae

Their days as soldiers may be over. Still, Jenny will never forget how the horrors of war have brought them together.

It makes Rae's heart soar when she sees what her girl has done.

The excitement escalates as she hears Sgt. Rae getting closer. Jenny puts a lot of work into setting this up, but the rewards will be worth every minute.

A little thought and ingenuity goes a long way in keeping any relationship alive and flourishing.

The Loneliest Road

When Lila loses all hope of ever dancing again, there is only one thing left to do.

It is hard to imagine life beyond the Marines, and this is the first step.

The Shoe Tree is little more than a curiosity for many. For Lila, it is the end of a dream. She has hoped to do this alone. Now she is glad to have this woman share her pain.

If you have Audible this is the same book as "Best Lesbian Romance Volume 6: Holding Fast" it is narrated by Leslie Belair. It is really excellent, and enjoyable each story really is entertaining and hits home on various levels. If you get the Audible version or this Kindle version you won't be disappointed if you enjoy this genre. *Don't know why they made two different titles.

Most stories are pretty good. Very short, so it's very easy to get through one if you only have a few minutes to sit down to read.
The stories aren't "over the top" and that is what I was looking for...romance stories, not erotica.

This is the first collection of Best Lesbian Romance that I’ve read, but I’ll definitely be looking out for others, whether it is the newest or older ones, as Radclyffe obviously puts together stunning anthologies. If you enjoy reading about lesbian romance across a spectrum of settings, plots and ages, then you should definitely check out Best Lesbian Romance 2013. It comes highly recommended.
